Substances that require authorisation are listed in Annex XIV of the REACH Regulation. There are currently 54 substances. After inclusion in Annex XIV these substances will be no longer available within the next 2 - 3 years.

Companies that want to use these substances for their intended uses have to apply for authorisation. The application must either include the demonstrated absence of any risk to human health and the environment, or a Socio-Economic Analysis.

Companies that use a substance subject to authorisation must notify the ECHA.
